William S. Burroughs' 1959 free-form, underground classic is brought to the screen weaving elements of the author's life with the fictional material. Peter Weller plays an aspiring writer and N.Y.C. exterminator in 1953 and when his loony, drug-addicted wife (Judy Davis) drops out of sight, the real story takes off. He is immersed in an extended, drug-laced odyssey to a Casablanca-like community that's seething with oddballs and weirdos. David Cronenberg's direction is superb. With Ian Holm, Julian Sands and Roy Scheider.
